Galerie Catherine Putman

The gallery Catherine Putman specializes in works on paper by contemporary artists, unique artwork, photography and prints.

Since the opening of the new venue in 2005, 40 rue Quincampoix in Paris, the gallery has organised over forty exibitions of French and foreign artists' work: Geneviève Asse, Georg Baselitz, Pierre Buraglio, Bernard Moninot, Tony Cragg, Imi Knoebel, Urs Lüthi, Agathe May, Keita Mori, Carmen Perrin, Frédéric Poincelet, Sophie Ristelhueber, Georges Rousse, etc.  The programme regularly rotates monographic and collective exhibitions.

The gallery Catherine Putman is a place enjoying an intimate atmosphere which is well suited for presentation of artwork on paper. It supports artists in their production of drawings, prints and photographies by exhibiting them at the gallery, at a number of art fairs and by publishing new editions of their work.

The gallery continues its involvement in the art publishing activities initiated by Jacques and Catherine Putman in the 1970s, together with the artists such as Pierre Alechinsky, Max Ernst, Bram van Velde, followed in the years 1990s and 2000s with Geneviève Asse, Georg Baselitz, Pierre Buraglio, Tony Cragg, Bertrand Lavier, Claude Viallat, etc. The work of the art publisher allows the gallery to disseminate quality work of prominent artists of the national and international scene among both art collectors and the wider public.

Catherine Putman died on January 2009 and Eleonore Chatin, her collaborator since the opening of the gallery, took over the responsibilities of the director. The gallery wishes to preserve its specificity by maintaining close relationships with its artists and by establishing new partnerships.
